In a sad post on social media, the Gospel musician wrote:”I am glad I showed you love in the smallest possible way from afar…I still pray you win the female Artist of the year at the upcoming VGMA because you worked hard to the top.”
Sonnie Badu recently mounted a strong defense for talented singer Ebony.
He’d urged Ghanaians to rather support the ‘Hustle’ singer because she was a great talent.
“Everyone has his or her own reason for behaving in a certain way, therefore before you criticise anyone, listen to the person’s story and know what they have been through,” he noted.
“All Ebony needs is love, not insults because she is indeed a great talent, although she is known for half-naked dressing, she didn’t dress that way when she launched her album recently, and that is why there is the need to know why she sometimes dress that way,” he added.
“We shouldn’t be hypocrites. Most of those who insult her for dressing half naked are the same people who go to watch her shows,” the ‘Baba’ hit singer further stressed.
